    Breaking news: the sun is brighter than the moon.

  2. What Obama wanted to add, “and I do enjoy seeing Trump squirm.”

    His face says it.

    Awaiting Trump’s response, it will be tweeted, by Trump, in tremendous fashion, from the toilet at about 2 to 3am in the morning…

    Now if all of the people who showed up to protest will turn out to vote in Nov we can see real changes.

    • Richard Ostby | June 4, 2020 at 8:15 PM | Reply

      @Kelly Murphy if you mean voting for Biden then ask yourself this basic question. If Biden says real changes are coming then after 50 years serving in the Government what kind of changes did he make? These people come around and act like they care about the poor Black Communities about every 4 years yet never provide them with jobs. What did Obama/Biden do for African Americans for 8 years? Biden is a Racist just like you all call out Trump for his Past Racism so in that regard he’s actually worse.

      C Moore Biden and Obama had 8 years to pass law enforcement reform legislation but they did NOTHING. Trump at least has passed prison reform to the benefit of many minorities.

      obama is a mass murderer

    • Voting is revolution; unless you want to go back to being a province of England. I hear Russia is interested.

  5. His opinion matters just as much as mine. There were riots in the 60’s, 60 years later nothing has changed in the way some people act.

    • This is different. They now seek to overthrow the government. They will fail and get lazy. The riots will stop for now. But we need to learn from this and coordinate with our towns snd neighbors and form more militias. We need to prepare for the left’s big push…it’s coming

    • Matthew Huszarik | June 4, 2020 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      Biggest difference is most of the country was racist in the late 1960s. I now believe that while racism is still rampant it is no longer the majority of America.

      La-dee Daa what more bois in Hawaiian shirts playing war? Give me a break. I’m surprised they bothered to put their video games down and come out of the basement.

  6. Bunkerboy will be dragged from the basement in January. 5 more months till election! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    You can just see the intelligence he has over Trump in just a few moments, in just a few words.

  8. A dog could walk up to Trump, take a dump next to him and that would outshine him. He’s so dull, it’s really not that hard to do.

  9. Obama: “Many young people have become motivated, it makes me feel optimistic.”
    Trump: “Thugs” that will be “met by vicious dogs and ominous weapons”

    • Volha Teagle | June 4, 2020 at 9:14 PM | Reply

      Wyze Wrdz that it was. I am not interested in these maga people points not even a little bit. I fan my anger on U T once in a while and find it amusing to pick on maga dummies. That’s all

    • Volha Teagle | June 4, 2020 at 9:36 PM | Reply

      Arrowhead 7 Dear stupid maga person. Anger is just anger nothing more nothing less. It can be justified or not so much. You have no clue on how to rationalize your thoughts, dumb maga trailer trash

    • @Wyze Wrdz You are a racist because everyone who defends trump is racist. You might as well wave the NAZI flag and then act incredulous when people call you racist.
      Keep pretending to laugh at your betters for being smarter than you.
      “The world see me as a black woman”
      Why do you racists pretend to be black when everyone can tell you are not? You just look pathetic.

    • @La-dee Daa Cry about it fascist.

    • @Mickey E … You really are determined to believe your assumption … You never met someone who hate to be labeled White or black or Mexican ?? Some of us just accept the fact that we are all just human beings of different complexions with different intentions … So you think I’m white because I said something about Obama that you didn’t like?? So you believe all “blacks” support Obama and dislike Trump??? Wow… are you white ? Lol… Or yellow?? Or maybe you’re oompa loompa orange? Either way… Are you human or are you an alien hybrid??? Do you have a soul or are you a synthetic clone or Android??? Just curious to know who or what you are 🙂… Human beings shouldn’t focus so much on the color of skin and focus more on the soul within. Respect.

      @Christopher Ewis So you are paraphrasing what you think about Syria and potential constitutional violation.
      Where are your 50 examples Trump v Women? You said you wrote to that with dates. Where is it? Not on this thread.
      You’re through Get help.

    • Mark Halgunseth | June 4, 2020 at 6:34 PM | Reply

      @Christopher Ewis You were the one posting lies about Trump But when asked for supporting material, Trump v Women, you cannot produce it. As a true DemRat, you lie and write “I gave you 50 examples with dates” knowing full well you haven’t
      Now as a true DemRat you make it my issue. You’re a sad fool. You are fizzling out. 29 years old with no education or gumption, prescribing hate on others that want to build up America. Something foreign to the losing DemRat party

      Now go away

    • Trump has my vote

    • Christopher Ewis | June 4, 2020 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      Mark Halgunseth I’m looking right at them brother. Open your eyes. They were posted 3 hours ago in two separate comments. Those are quotes from our washed up reality stars president about women.

    • Mark Halgunseth | June 4, 2020 at 7:59 PM | Reply

      @Christopher Ewis Then copy and paste them here. I looked all the way back to 6 hours ago. Don’t see them. You lie

  11. So good to hear him come forward with words of hope and encouragement for America 🇺🇸

    • The Obama administration was the most corrupt this country has ever seen. Open your eyes man.

    • Obama had words of hope and change but he failed to represent the people however the banks benefited more from his presidency instead. Don’t be blind he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing!

    • @Cookie Lyn verse all the ultra wealthy people benefiting from Trumps outrageous tax cuts… whos fooling who?

    • @Rod i guess you’ve been on a coma for the last three years… welcome to the orange dumpster fire buddy!!!

    I respect Obama. Whether you liked/disliked his policies or political views, Atleast he was able to address the nation in a sensible way every time he spoke!

    Unlike Trump who is always all over the place and just talking rubbish. But I guess that’s what Americans like, hype,

      @Mechanical T-Rex so you should also look at Congress during that time rather than working on coronavirus they were dealing with in their words the biggest threat. Trumps impeachment that failed due to lack of first hand evidence. Congress and the Democrats could’ve done a lot more with the resources they tied up in this bogus impeachment. Democrats have done nothing but try to unseat him since he got in without even giving him a chance same with the left leaning media

      Trump approves of declaring war on American citizens.

      @CrazyCatLady 55 if they are looting and burning buildings down they are domestic terrorists not innocent citizens.

    Shows how horrible the job the current “president’” is doing when the previous President has to come out of his glorious retirement every few days or weeks and address the people about the unbelievable situation going on
    Thank you, Mr. President.

    • Nothing ruins a racists day like President Barack Obama delivering a presidential speech. Their guy just isn’t capable.

    • Real?

      Cause he put black people at the bottom
      And put illegals before them?

      Daca anyone

      Stop smoking crack

  17. “A greater recognition that we can do better.” Obama.

    • @biden_dimentia2020 Or allow 100000 Americans to die of a pandemic that you were warned was coming due your own hubris like Trump. Please don’t try the whataboutism: Trump is an abject failure.

      @biden_dimentia2020 what a sad life you must lead when you spend all day posting the same comment over and over. Like Trump or Bush haven’t been killing civilians in the same war. You should be angry at the terrorists that hide among them like cowards instead of standing up and facing their enemy like a man. Moron.

      @biden_dimentia2020 Follow your leader:

    • Jesus Christ guys, of course, HE IS A GREAT SPEAKER AND GREAT LIAR. He is professional, eloquent, beloved, etc…. and…

      Baltimore, Ferguson, etc… he and Biden were in office for EIGHT YEARS and did NOTHING to help race relations. Actually, all polls indicate race relations ACTUALLY WORSENED during his presidency. Go ahead, otherthan his SPEAKING ABILITY and simply being black, what did Joe Biden and Obama do for the black community??? What did THEY ACTUALLY DO!?!?!

    • @V Baxter Trump took too long to respond to the coronavirus pandemic!

  18. Please, please, don’t say “Trump’s first term” – don’t put that out into the universe.

    • @mike taylor I just hate
      Marxists/socialists/ communists

      Classical liberals are ok

      But those are like finding 🦄

      @grow forit I love your humor, it’s so big of you…but trump doesn’t care, you know it and so does everyone else who supports him…❤

    • @Mark Halgunseth i’m willing to give him a chance instead of giving the moron in office now who has yet to actually be a leader.
